Southern Right-Whale Dolphin

The Southern Right-Whale Dolphin is a circumpolar cetacean only found in the cold waters of the Southern Ocean, ocassionally reaching more temperate latitudes in areas affected by the cold and productive Humboldt Current, off Chile. This splendid set of pictures were taken by Enrique Couve who joined a pelagic trip off Valparaiso on Sun Nov 8 2009. Cetaceans like Sperm Whales and even Orcas are more often seen than this rare and highly oceanic dolphin. A pod of 60+ Dusky Dolphin (Lagenorhynchus obscurus) were seen associated together a smaller pod  of approximately 30 individuals of Lissodelphis peronii. The feeding frenzy was produced by the presence of an anchovy swarm, apparently the main prey for these dolphins at these latitudes. © 2009 Enrique Couve, Fantastico Sur Expeditions, Chile.
